Triaenodes tridonatus Ross

Three-tooth Triaenodes Caddisfly (Triaenodes tridonatus)

The Three-tooth Triaenodes Caddisfly was described in 1938; it is known from populations in Alabama, Florida and Oklahoma, USA.

The Florida and Oklahoma populations appear to have been last seen in the middle 1930s, while the population in Alabama survived at least until 1991, when it was last surveyed; this species may in fact still be in existence, if so, however, its future expectations are rather bleak.

Agalinis nuttallii Shinners

Nuttall’s False Foxglove (Agalinis nuttallii)

This species is known exclusively from the type material which had been collected in 1819 on a river bank at the Arkansas River either in present day’s Arkansas or Oklahoma, USA.

The species has never been found again since and is believed to be extinct.

Conepatus leuconotus ssp. telmalestes Bailey

Big Thicket Hog-nosed Skunk (Conepatus leuconotus ssp. telmalestes)

The Big Ticket Hog-nosed Skunk is a subspecies of the widespread American Hog-nosed Skunk (Conepatus leuconotus (Lichtenstein)) that apparently was restricted to a small region in southern Oklahoma and northern Texas, USA.

This subspecies, however, might in fact not be valid; another subspecies, once thought to be extinct, the Furnace Canyon Hog-nosed Skunk (Conepatus leuconotus ssp. figginisi Miller) has been merged with another subspecies that still exists, but is likewise most likely not valid at all.


Until the taxonomical situation is cleared, the species will be mentioned here for the sake of completeness.
